Quarter 1 Project I:
MAKE A HISPANIC CRAFT
The student will create a representative craft from Hispanic culture. They should research the craft’s history, purpose or other significant facts about the craft and how it is used in a particular Hispanic culture. These facts should be written into a one-page report. The student should also explain how they created the final product. See the list of possible crafts on the topics list
Quarter 2 Project:
SING OR PERFORM AN AUTHENTIC SONG
For this project the student will find an authentic song and either perform it on an instrument or sing it in class. Two students may work together on this. The students will also hand in a typed report about the origin of the song and any historical background information about the music or the composer. No “Macarena”!
LEARN AND PERFORM AN AUTHENTIC DANCE
The student will learn a dance native to Hispanic culture and will then perform it in front of the class. Two students may work together on this. The students will also hand in a typed paper about the origin of the dance and any historical background information about the dance. No “Macarena”!
Quarter 3 Project:
Student must find authentic recipe he/she can prepare. The dish must be authentic, not American dish with a Hispanic name!
(example: Taco dip)
It may NOT be store bought! The ingredients (of course) may be store bought.
Students must prepare the dish at home and bring in enough for class to sample it.
Student is responsible for bringing in forks, napkins, etc.
Students must also hand in and explain recipe, along with explanation what country and region it is from, when the dish is typically eaten and any information about traditions associated with the food.
First, we must get all parents permission for this culture project!
